Tomorrow (Saturday) I teach an ORGANIC PEST AND DISEASE CONTROLS CLASS-JUNE 25 for vegetable gardeners at the Milagro Community Gardens from 9 am-10:30am put on by HOMEGROWN NEW MEXICO organization. I will cover organic insecticides for various insect control and other organic methods to control many insects. I will also cover identification of many diseases and organic disease control. LOCATION: Milagro Community Garden on Legacy and Rodeo Road. Turn on Legacy and the parking lot is on the right, behind the Lutheran Church.
Home Grown New Mexico, a non-profit organization, creates venues where individuals, businesses and organizations that support home grown food production can exchange products, ideas and expertise. The vision is to enable New Mexicans to take personal responsibility for growing, raising, making and storing healthy food. For more information on them go to: http://www.homegrownnewmexico.org/

Thanks you for your timely and knowledgeable presentation at Milagro Garden on Saturday. My 2 tomato plants with early blight have been trimmed and Serenaded. Anything more you can tell me about the leaf miner trails running around on the leaves of one of my fava bean plants? and Thanks for your blog too. It’s great to read.
I found this site with some info for you. Do not use a systemic pesticide on vegetables. Sounds more like a cosmetic problem unless they are on greens. Good ole row cover sounds like it might help with infestation on your other crops.. Hope this helps….
